Why shouldn't he be upset?
Sirat Ibn Hisham and the middle portion (which is missing) apparently contains direct evidence that the followers of Muhammed to Abyssinia entirely converted away from Islam, stating their belief that the Prophet had corrupted the historic religion of "Abraham" (according to Samuel Zwemer, "The Law of Apostasy in Islam", 1924).
That that information has been edited out of this text (knowingly or accidentally), would cause anyone to call foul - kindly - on those who laud the availability of this altered copy of an important translation, while at the very same time praising the virtue of free information on this very topic.
These positive reviews are at best in error (this text should be removed) and at worst - possibly - an attempt at promoting benign censorship. -- try the wikipedia page for Ibn Hisham, it has a link to a complete (yet abridged) translation of Ibn Hisham.

Thanks to the uploader
We need not be too upset to be offensive and end up using abusive expressions for those who have done us some little act of good. We need to appreciate their effort and point out the problem rather politely or correct it ourselves if we can.

THIS SUCKS - IT WAS MIS-SCANNED!!!
How is it possible that no one noticed all the missing pages, and the fact that after the first hundred, the entire middle section is out of sequence?! Have you no editors?!

Very good to have
Ibn Hisham's edition of the life of Mohammed is a crucial text on early Islam. It is great to have this in English, freely available for download. Well done, whoever made this. Can we have more English versions of early Arabic texts please?
